Some of her guidelines included:
- You must be able to walk from your house to all the other houses you visit.
- You must be a child old enough to say "trick-or-treat," and too young to drive yourself to the store to buy your own candy.
- Parents, there is no trick-or-treating for your baby, sick child or yourself.
Melinda Reeber posted "I'm an east sider and NOT a big fan of Halloween anymore / I've had over 200 "people" coming / few of which I actually knew - large groups of uncostumed adults and teenagers has become dangerously intimidating / lights off over here now."
Emma Pelker commented, "I agree that Halloween is for younger kids and I'm in my early 20's. I don't like seeing teenagers and young adults whether they're in costume or not and as for parents with babies, we all know a 1year old isn't eating candy."
Claus von Bulow said "Wow, the entire Scrooge family has made an early appearance this year. If you don't like it, turn out the lights."
